This is the only poor review I have left of anything in my entire life. I tried to continue going back to her to see if it would be any different, but it has been the same every time. She has always been halfway out the door during my appointment. She doesn't ask if I have questions, so I have to stop her from going out the door to ask questions I may have. She doesn't explain answers to the questions very well and when she's done explaining she is out the door again even if I might have another question. I also want to discuss the poor service of the nurse. She is always in a bad mood when I come in and seems very annoyed to answer any questions I might have, event if it is just where the lab is located.

She I really like the care I get from Dr. Bautista. She has been the best Doctor I have had in regard to her knowledge about what ever condition I am seeing her for and has always listened to me and not made me feel like I was in a hurry and she always makes me feel like she truly does care about my health and that Im not just a number in the system. She always has given me her undivided time and I have total confidence in her. She has helped me so much when Ive been at some of the lowest times in my depression and I just truly appreciate the quality of care I get from everyone i come into contact with at her office. Even the people on the phone seem to really care. I always tell my family and friends how much I like my doctor and I have talked to mom about switching her doctor to Dr. Bautista [...]

Dr. Bautista is pleasant but seems reluctant to help with specific requests, like dealing with low results on a blood test. I was also surprised to find the prescription she gave me to be labeled with specific contraindications because of its side effects on the liver since in my discussions with her and her assistant and in my answers to questions on the introductory sheets I mentioned concern for treatment that might adversely affect my liver because of my history of [...].

I feel Dr. Bautista is overloaded with patients and she does her best to address critical issues. I understand that she has to prioritize. My non-urgent questions were referred to a specialist so I think I will go directly to the specialist next time as my insurance allows this

Dr. Bautista was nice, but I didn't receive a "first time patient" exam as I imagined it would be. Since this was my first time seeing her - I thought the physical exam would be more thorough.

3 Issues in last 6 months: [...] She seems like she cares, looking things up on computer, etc.. but lacks a clear delivery. Her communication style is not direct, therefore, I've lost confidence in trusting that she knows what she's doing OR what she's communicated that she said she was going to do. Not an ideal provider/patient scenario.

after having a horrible experience with my last Dr, I had to find a new Dr. I was having some very big health concerns and my last Dr would not listen. I'm very thankful I found Dr Batista. I now have the answers to those concerns, I'm also on medication that has helped.
